The Annual Raffle party hosted by the Rotary Club of Lockport NY will mark a very special anniversary in 2019!  In conjunction with our club’s largest fundraising event, we’re celebrating 100 years of Rotary service to our community and the world!  
 
Join us on Friday, May 17, 2019 at the Lockport Town and Country Club to support our Scholarship Fund and commemorate the centennial year of Lockport’s oldest service club.  A limited number of ticket holders will be entered in a Cash Raffle, with a top prize of $2,500!
 
While supporters need not be present to win, each $125 ticket admits two adults to a lively party featuring music, delicious appetizers, cash bar and raffles!

Our Early Act Club is looking sharp in their brand new t-shirts! Secretary Lexie led the group through a discussion about what “service above self” truly means! Thank you to D&T Graphics for creating these awesome t-shirts!

Yesterday our EarlyAct Club held their monthly meeting! At this meeting they were presented with their official club application & worked on their “Four Way Test Coloring Books” to learn more about all the incredible things Rotary does and how the EarlyAct Club can help! 💙

4 of our 5 current Lockport Rotary Scholars who provided brief updates on their academic and personal progress Tuesday (1/8/19): (Left to right) Mary Pegan, Claire Hildreth, Olivia Hansen, and Benjamin Flaherty. Our fifth current scholar, Victoria Haak, was the Club's guest on 12/19. 
 
 
 
Step one in taking down a street clock: place straps around the top. Using chains, secure straps to a hook (or something) behind the scoop of the big truck. Using torch, cut base of post armature away from concrete.
 
 
Step two in removing clock: after lifting, lower gently to the street. Again, using torch, remove the upright armature from the top, pulling gently.
 
 

And step 3: Gently lower the top part onto the waiting trailer. Ever so carefully, gradually lay it on its side in the trailer. Secure it with straps and take it to the workshop.

Bye-bye, old girl. See you in 9-12 months, all shiny and new.

 

 
We had the drawing for the diamond pendant from Mills Jewelers at our holiday party on Wednesday evening, 12/12. The winner was Marlana Rice, from Clarence. Rotarian Cyndy Cotten delivered the pendant to Marlana Saturday morning, 12/15--and Marlana is obviously a very happy winner!
 
At our Club Assembly Meeting last Tuesday Aaron Carlson spoke to his fellow members about Rotary International's efforts to eradicate polio. Since 1988, we’ve seen a worldwide reduction in polio cases of 99.9%. Last year we only saw wild polio cases in three countries. This month's Happy Dollars and fines will be donated to the Rotary Foundation for this cause. The Bill and Melinda Gates foundation is matching any donations 2 to 1.
 
We are "this close" to the end of polio, as this picture of our club suggests. You can donate and learn more about the cause here: https://www.endpolio.org/
 
We are thrilled to announce that we have started an EarlyAct Club at DeSales Catholic School! This service club for 4th and 5th grade students sponsored by the Rotary Club of Lockport will share Rotary values and instill the importance of service above self with these enthusiastic students!
